I totally love Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh so far. The characters are one of the main reasons I am enjoying it so much. Mrs. Frisby is a widowed mouse who works incredibly hard to support her four children, Teresa, Martin, Cynthia, and Timothy. I think it’s hilarious how all of the main characters are animals and they all talk. They are like mini, furry people! I also am enjoying this novel because of the plot that has already been created. The solution seems so impossible, and I love seeing how the characters learn to solve the problem; predicting how it will end up being solved is a challenge. I cannot stop reading about Mrs. Frisby and her wild family!
